Outrunning Karma Lyrics
He's such a charmer, all the
Bugs and their larva follow
Him out to Colorado
Ten-dozen hearts in a bag
Their bodies lyin', he'll drag
Them down to Colorado
A modern desperado
And he'll race for miles through the...

I believe this song is about a narcissistic person who has done a lot of bad things, like breaking the law, using and hurting people for his own gain. Breaking hearts by lying. And now his secrets got out. His only option is to run. Hiding is not an option for this person because he needs his narcissistic feed.
Narcissistic people are usually very charming on the outside. But have no morals. Which makes them have no conscience. Like a child. So that makes him a boy "outrunning karma that boy".
The sentence "He drives for miles through the night" inclines that he is in fact an adult. But behaves like a boy.
What Alec did in the course is really beautiful. He both is sympathizing but moreover hating on this person. Pointing out that "He's never gonna make it" and "all people he's forsaken, karma is always gonna chase him for his lies" The poor people he has forsaken. But also he is forsaken.
The reverence of the "church steeple down to satan" Refers that he was pretending to be a good person (good Christian) while in actuality he belongs down to satan because of his actions.
The sentence "There's really no escape until he dies" Refers to how unforgivable his actions are. And moreover. A true narcissistic person can't help it. They are at a certain point too far from saving. The only true escape for this person is to die.

I believe that this song is talking about a mass murderer who is running from the cops so that he doesn't have to go to jail, but the cops won't give up so he has to keep running. He decides to head for Colorado, where he believes they would least expect him to go. But, unfortunately, he doesn't make it to Colorado and the police catch him and he is sentenced to death for all of the people he killed and all of the families that he broke along the way.

Maybe the song is talking about someone who has done bad things and is trying to escape from possibly the police, which was why they called him a desperado. He is heading to Colorado and is running away from his past.

its about people who have hurt others and they know their time is up example would be when he says last day of sparta. spartans were the most cutthroat ruthless army in the time of greece and rome they killed to kill they were weapons of war and apollo was who they believed in at the fall of sparta (my theory)

This song is about a player who broke many girl's hearts. that's why Alec says " 10 dozen hearts in a bag" However he says that Karma will get back to him soon.
